The Carver branch Library was one of 840 public and academic libraries in the country that won the National Endowment for the Humanities Bridging Cultures: Muslim Journeys Bookshelf grant. Visit the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys @ Carver Library InfoGuide.
The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf was designed as a means of introducing Americans to people, places, viewpoints, controversies, literature, art, and artifacts produced by the Islamic and Muslim experience both here and abroad. These texts and Audio/Visual components were selected by scholars and others considered experts in the study of literature, religion, culture, history, politics, science, and the arts.
The items on the bookshelf have been organized by the collaborating scholars and experts into 6 themes. Each of these themes is independently treated in a separate tab within the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys @ Carver Library InfoGuide.
- American Stories
- Connected Histories
- Literary Reflections
- Pathways of Faith
- Points of View
- Art, Architecture, and Film
